I’m a long time DT Pro user having a couple databases related to my interests. I’m now hell bent on going paperless since I have a small consulting business, two homes, grown kids with estate planning issues, etc. etc… I am buried in paper.
I’ve begun by creating a new database, importing files I had already scanned into PDF’s and scanning additional paper that needs to be kept, but not in paper form. This is a database for my vacation home and all the Cap Ex, receipts, ownership documents, maintenance records and so on. I did all of this in DT PRO with a flat bed Cannon. ( A real chore). I don’t even want to attempt that at home, but I do have a multi sheet single side scanner there.
The real question is: Why or how would I benefit from OCR? I can search for any text in any PDF and find the document I’m looking for. What, if any for me are the benefits of DTP Office, given the amount of scanning in, I will be doing?
